Guardian Summer Short Story Special
I’ve not seen it mentioned in my corners of the blogosphere but it was the Guardian’s summer short story special last Saturday. Contributors this year are:
- Hilary Mantel – ‘Comma’
- David Mitchell – ‘Muggins Here’
- Barbara Trapido – ‘Marble Angels’
- Roddy Doyle – ‘The Plate’
- Téa Obreht – ‘The Sentry’
I’ve only read the Mitchell so far and, although it is nicely observed in the manner of a middled aged Black Swan Green, it is a pretty thin story.
